Premiere: Sorority Noise open their hearts on ‘Either Way’

Sorority Noise open their hearts on ‘Either Way’

The first track from the Connecticut group’s new EP is streaming first on DIY ahead of their debut UK dates.

Last year’s ‘Joy, Departed’ LP saw Connecticut four-piece Sorority Noise quickly establish themselves as the go-to for the open-hearted and honest. With a new EP on the way, they’re only set to climb that ladder.

‘It Kindly Stopped For Me’, the aforementioned short player, is being led by ‘Either Way’, a stripped-back number that expands on Sorority Noise’s already fit-to-burst repertoire.

“I wrote this song in our van outside of Chain Reaction in Anaheim, CA,” explains frontman Cam Boucher. “I had found out I lost another friend a few days previous and was having a difficult time thinking about how I had made positive strides in dealing with my mental health, but hadn’t been able to help friends around me that I didn’t know we’re suffering from the same thing.”

It’s a haunting, introspective ode to a lost kindred spirit - one that carries Sorority Noise’s emotional intelligence to the fore. Get the first play of it below, and pre-order ‘It Kindly Stopped For Me’ here.
